  • Small Business Cybersecurity Awareness

    Information protection and security is vital to the sustainability and success of small business and the national economy.  As advocates and resource partners for the business community and service providers for the federal government, it is our role to educate and assist with federal contracting compliance guidelines and information security awareness.  More than two thirds of all small businesses report that are dependent on the internet for day-to-day activities.  Yet, according to the National Cybersecurity Alliance, most small businesses don’t do enough to protect themselves online.  Twenty percent of small businesses don’t have or use anti-virus software.  Sixty percent don’t use any encryption on their wireless networks, and fewer than 30% have a security plan in place.  This program is designed to provide awareness through training, one-on-one assistance with cybersecurity action plan development and implementation working with other UTSA specialty centers on cybersecurity.

  • WOULD YOUR BUSINESS SURVIVE IF…

    • The road to your business closes as result of construction or bad weather?
    • A key supplier/customer goes out of business?
    • A key employee gets sick for an extended period of time?

    WHY PREPARE

    From workplace disruptions to natural and man-made disasters, as a small business owner, you should be ready for anything. Unexpected events can quickly interrupt your business putting you and your employees at risk. If you are not prepared, your business could shut down forever.
